This book collects a selection of fifteen papers presented at three
meetings of the Society for Pidgin and Creole Linguistics in 1996 and
1997. The focus is on papers which approach issues in creole studies
with novel perspectives, address understudied pidgin and creole
varieties, or compellingly argue for controversial positions. The
papers demonstrate how pidgins and creoles shed light on issues such
as verb movement, contact-induced language change and its gradations,
discourse management via tense-aspect particles, language genesis,
substratal transfer, and Universal Grammar, and cover a wide range of
contact languages, ranging from English- and French-based creoles
through Portuguese creoles of Africa and Asia, Sango, Popular
Brazilian Portuguese, West African Pidgin Englishes, and Hawaiian
Creole English. Contributions by: Angela Bartens; Marlyse Baptista;
Joseph Clancy Clements; Paul Garrett; St�phane Goyette; John Holm;
Alain Kihm; George Lang; John McWorther; Bettina Migge; Anthony
J. Naro; S.J. Roberts; W.J. Samarin; John Singler; Sali Tagliamonte;

This book provides a good overview of philosophical and cognitive
approaches to language use and meaning. A synthesis of such approaches
leads to a dynamic concept of pragmatic meaning which is on the one
hand grounded in cognition and motivated by linguistic and cultural
convention and, on the other, creates a framework for studying the
interactive and social dimensions of the development of meaning in
linguistic communication. Through an experientialist approach based on
connectionist models, the author shows that by internalizing pragmatic
meaning people become social agents who reproduce, challenge or change
their social parameters during interaction. Pragmatic Meaning and
Cognition is suitable as a course book in Pragmatics and Semantics and
of interest to those concerned with cognitive models and dynamic and
social aspects of linguistic communication.

Message 3: Language Policy and Pedagogy, R. D. Lambert & E. Shohamy (eds.)

Date: Thu, 13 Jul 2000 15:13:20 -0400
From: Paul Peranteau <paulbenjamins.com>
Subject: Language Policy and Pedagogy, R. D. Lambert & E. Shohamy (eds.)

John Benjamins Publishing announces this new work:

Language Policy and Pedagogy.
Essays in honor of A. Ronald Walton.
Richard D. LAMBERT (NLFC, Washington) and 
Elana SHOHAMY (Tel Aviv University) (eds.)
US & Canada: 1 55619 763 2 / USD 65.00 (Hardcover)
Rest of world: 90 272 2559 1 / NLG 130.00 (Hardcover)

In this memorial volume for A. Ronald Walton, cutting-edge scholars
interrelate two normally separate domains: the formation of language
policy and the improvement of language teaching. Bernard Spolsky,
Elana Shohamy, Joshua Fishman, and Kees de Bot address theoretical
aspects of national language policy. John Trim relates the historical
development of the Council of Europe's international language
policy. Richard Lambert, Ronald Walton, Richard Brecht, and Xueying
Wang deal with structural issues in language instruction in the United
States. Eleanor Jorden, Galal Walker, Myriam Met, and Gilbert Merkx
discuss the special problems of providing instruction in the
non-Western languages. And Michael Long, Ross Steele, Ralph Ginsberg
and Laura Miller are concerned with specific pedagogical issues:
task-based language teaching, the role of culture in language
instruction, and what is learned during study abroad. These articles
stand both as definitive statements on their individual topics and,
taken together, as a fresh amalgamation of policy and pedagogy.
